Good list though much appreciated If you find anything else that fits please put it up on the forum, as I intend on dropping that rear subframe only once, and figure I will change everything I can during that 6 hour job.
Make sure that the parts you are getting fit. My list is just what ive found searching threads but info changes all the time. Hopefully someone can confirm/add to the list.

I'll wait for a lil confirmation on fitment before I place any orders, but I agree with you on every product you mentioned, just based on looking around here.

Thanks again

I think I've put together a part / price list for the M3 bushings (front & rear) and M3 rear sway bar. They are as follows:

Front Bushing 1 - Bottom 31352283967 $8.43
Front Bushing 2 - Top 31352283968 $8.43
Rear Sway Bar 33552283962 $120.39
Rear Bushing 1 - Bottom 33552283709 $14.64
Rear Bushing 2 - Top 33552283710 $14.64

If this is all that is needed, I come up with a price of $166.53. Obviously, this does not include labor.

Can anyone verify that this is all that's needed. Also, has anyone done this upgrade?

I think a lot of people are forgetting how much TIRES play a part in handling. Start there, and then start changing suspension if needed.
